Finding Neutrinos – a Q&A with Matthew Green
The world’s smallest neutrino detector has found neutrinos: elusive, electrically neutral particles that interact only weakly with matter.
Physicists Use Numerical ‘Tweezers’ to Study Nuclear Interactions
Researchers use numerical tweezers to study how interactions between protons and neutrons produce forces between nuclei.
Tracking the Protein Patrollers
A nanoprobe developed by biophysicists at NC State could allow researchers to trace the movements of different proteins along DNA – without the drawbacks of current methods. A host of proteins patrol your DNA helix like cops on a beat. […]
